West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this classic and rare original southern California 1989 Jaguar XJS 5.3L V12 coupe with only 41K original miles! Gorgeous and very striking and desirable color combination of original factory 'Solent Blue Metallic' (Code JFJ) paint with factory wire wheels and beautiful doeskin 'Saville Gray' (Trim Code LDY) leather interior! The Coupe model is very rare and desirable with only 2,939 models built in 1989/90 compared to 4,633 convertible/roadster models and with production finishing entirely in 1993. This particular car must be seen to be truly appreciated! A real head-turner & most likely one of the very finest examples available anywhere!
This is the rare 5.3L 326 CID V12 model sold with original factory options including: electronic fuel injection, electronic ignition system, power 4 anti-lock wheel disc brakes, power rack & pinion steering, leather-bound tilt steering wheel with airbag, power tinted windows, heated rear window, power door locks, automatic temperature control, air conditioning, cruise control, trip computer, leather faced seats and trim, heated sport seats, power lumbar support, burled walnut facia and trim, deep pile carpet, 4 speaker 80W AM/FM Cassette Player & power antenna, Halogen foglamps/headlights, heated power mirrors, dual coach stripes, chrome spoke alloy wheels and heated windshield washer.
Purchased by original southern California owner on 5/26/1988 at 'Moss Jaguar' of Santa Barbara, California and serviced there initially with service in recent years primarily at the renown Jaguar independent specialists 'Bob Cutler' of Pasadena, CA. Obviously always garaged with absolutely no rust and no accidents and a clean CARFAX report, owned by only obviously very careful and mature owner/drivers since new - never abused, babied all the way!
The original factory striking and rarely ordered 'Solent Blue Metallic' color paint is in absolutely excellent and virtually flawless condition as is the original 'Saville Gray' color leather seats and interior. There are virtually no signs of any wear with the door panels, headliner and the carpets all in outstanding condition throughout. The car has been always primarily only dealer and Jaguar specialists serviced since new and the car will be sold with all its original owners manuals, dealer stamped 'Passport to Service' booklet and is a car which had an original sales price of over $48K (over $100K adjusted for inflation in 2020 dollars!)
Powered by one of the finest, race proven engines built by Jaguar, the smooth 5,344 c.c. V12 engine was a worthy successor to the XK series of Jaguar sports cars dating from the late 1940's and this particular engine is extremely strong and smooth running with excellent oil pressure and which does not burn or leak oil. The temperature always remains cool and the car drives exactly like a V12 Jaguar with such low miles should!
This must be one of the finest examples available anywhere of this classic and increasingly desirable and collectible rare V12 Jaguar, a truly luxurious smooth V12 ride and one of the last beautiful hand built cars from Jaguar's legendary Browns Lane, Coventry, England plant and a car that cost almost $49K new in 1989 (over $100K in todays money!) - this is one of the last classically beautiful design built by Jaguar in their long and famous history of classic lines - with these particular 2 door sports coupe models becoming harder to find in such all original condition with low miles and with this car having had only obviously very careful and fastidious ownership since new, an always garaged car primarily serviced at certified Jaguar mechanics or dealerships, this is one sure-fire classic car investment for the Jaguar enthusiast or simply any classic car lover!
You will certainly look long and hard to find a finer example of this immaculate and very rare and desirable V12 Jaguar XJS sports coupe with no history of any accidents, rust or 'stories' and all original owners dealer handbooks and tools and boasting only 41K original miles in this most striking of color combinations available anywhere else!
